Eating Disorder Parent Information

In 2013, Virginia passed a law requiring every school system to provide information to parents annually about eating disorders with parents/guardians of students in the fifth through twelfth grades. 

According to the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA 2023),

Eating disorders are serious but treatable mental and physical illnesses that can affect people of all genders, ages, races, religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations, body shapes, and weights. In the United States, 28.8 million Americans will suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their lives.

There is no single cause of an eating disorder. Rather, it is a complex combination of biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors that converge and set off an individual’s predisposed genetic vulnerability.

In collaboration with the Fairfax County Health Department, FCPS has developed a web page with detailed information and resources about eating disorders.  To find out more, please visit the FCPS Eating Disorders website.

In addition to the information on the FCPS website, the National Eating Disorders Association has a toll free, confidential Helpline, 1-800-931-2237.

Sleep helps maintain cognitive skills, such as attention, learning, and memory, such that poor sleep can make it much more difficult to cope with even relatively minor stressors and can even impact our ability to perceive the world accurately. Here are tips for creating healthy sleep habits.

Did You Know...

The use of oral nicotine pouches are on the rise. Products like Zyn, Velo, and On!  contain nicotine powder instead of tobacco leaf. Nicotine powder differs from tobacco leaf in that the user does not need to spit. Some of these products come in youth-friendly flavors. Oral nicotine pouches are not approved by the FDA for any use, including as a tool for quitting nicotine. Nicotine pouches can contain high concentrations of nicotine, which can put the user at risk of nicotine addiction. Here is more information from truth initiative.

Did You Know...

Do you know the difference between Empathy and Compassion? Here is the full article that helps navigate the difference.

When empathy grows into compassion, it becomes more helpful for both you and the person for whom you demonstrate it. Each one leads to a different response: 

  • Empathy is feeling their pain and wanting to remove the hardship they’re enduring.
  • Compassion is feeling their pain and wanting to equip them to overcome it from now on.

GovDelivery1 month 3 weeks ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

Good afternoon, 

Volunteer sign up is now OPEN. 

Click here to volunteer! Thank you! 

 

Dear Langley High School families,

We wanted to encourage you to sign up to volunteer and donate for our annual Langley Pyramid Rise Against Hunger event! This is a wonderful Langley pyramid tradition, and we want to make sure our families can participate. We held our last Rise Against Hunger event in February 2023 with our meals going to Convoy of Hope, a School Feeding Program in the Philippines. This event was a huge success and provide a wonderful service learning opportunity for children and adults of all ages.

On Saturday, February 3, 2024, families in the Langley Pyramid are joining together again this year to help children in need. In partnership with Rise Against Hunger, the Langley pyramid elementary, middle, and high schools are coming together with a goal to prepare 83,000 meal packages for schools and orphanages around the world.

Donate and help raise money for the event:

Each Langley HS student is encouraged to donate directly online at Langley Pyramid Rise Against Hunger 2024.  Each meal costs only 46 cents to make. For just $15, you can donate over 32 meals; $30 will make over 65 meals and $100 will make nearly 220 meals.

In order to reach our goal of 75,000 meals, the Langley Pyramid needs to raise $35,000 by January 31st  If your company makes matching contributions, please consider having them join you in making a tax-deductible donation today at: Langley Pyramid Rise Against Hunger 2024 and help us Rise Against Hunger

Corporate Sponsors Needed and Tax-Deductible Donation

To help offset the cost of the donation boxes and contribute to our donation cause, we are inviting companies to help sponsor this event. All sponsors will have their names included in our communications and special recognition at our event. If interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact Ken Junge at Colvin Run Elementary School 703-757-3000 or [email protected]. Rise Against Hunger is a Tax-deductible organization, and any funding families/businesses donate online towards our goal is tax-deductible. You may make your tax-deductible donation today at: Langley Pyramid Rise Against Hunger 2024.

 

Volunteer for the event: (Sign up is now OPEN) 

https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0C45ABA62FA1FC1-langley#/

On Wednesday, January 10th, we will send out a Sign-up Genius for volunteers to register for the event and pick a time slot in which to volunteer.  Enter "Quantity" as the number of volunteers attending.  If for any reason you need to cancel, please cancel through the Sign-up Genius to make those slots available to other Langley High School families. Being a popular pyramid event, please sign up as volunteer slots will fill up quickly.  Children ages 4-12 must be accompanied by an adult. On the day of the event, volunteers package meals based on the amount of money raised, so it is recommended that if you wish to volunteer for the event, please make a monetary donation.   

 

About Rise Against Hunger

Rise Against Hunger is a 4-star rated organization that sends nutrient-rich, dehydrated meal packages to developing countries around the world.  In those countries, the meal packages are delivered to families through the schools.  In developing countries, children may not attend school to receive a formal education, so in part to this program, more children are being encouraged to attend school to receive a hot meal at school and additional meal packages for their families.  As an additional benefit, more children are also receiving a formal education. Click here to learn more about Rise Against Hunger. 

This is a great event for the whole family! Don't miss out.  Please email [email protected] if you have any questions. Thank you for your support of this initiative. 

Fondly,

Did You Know...

Here are 7 tips to help keep your New Year’s resolution.

Curriculum Night (Rising 10-12th grade)

Tuesday, January 9, 2024    7:00pm - 8:20pm

Parents will have the opportunity to attend sessions with teachers to ask questions regarding the program of studies for courses.  Due to a Basketball Game being held in the Main Gym, please enter through Door 14 where you can pick up a printout of the locations and general map of the building.  Please note that a rising 9th Grade program begins in the auditorium at 6:30pm so parents should proceed directly to the classroom of their choice for Session 1. 

 

Courses being represented and sessions available can be found here: https://langleyhs.fcps.edu/curriculum-night

Opioid Awareness & Community Conversation 

Conversation to Raise Awareness of Fentanyl and Other Drugs In this video, Superintendent Dr. Michelle Reid interviews the Fosters, a family who tragically lost their son Cayden to a half pill of fentanyl mistaken for Percocet. This heart-wrenching yet eye-opening video of their experience is essential to raise awareness among parents/caregivers and students about the dangers of fake painkillers.

Please join Dr. Reid on Wednesday, January 10, at 6:30 p.m., at Edison High School for a community conversation about opioid awareness. You may register to attend. However, registration is not required; it is simply for space considerations. 

The evening’s program is appropriate for parents/caregivers and students in grades 6-12. All attendees will receive free REVIVE! Narcan training during the event and learn about support services currently available within FCPS and Fairfax County.   

FCPS’ website also has resources to help you to start the conversation and additional support for families struggling with substance misuse.

Langley Pyramid Rise Against Hunger Event

GovDelivery1 month 3 weeks ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

Dear Langley High School families,

We wanted to encourage you to sign up to volunteer and donate for our annual Langley Pyramid Rise Against Hunger event! This is a wonderful Langley pyramid tradition, and we want to make sure our families can participate. We held our last Rise Against Hunger event in February 2023 with our meals going to Convoy of Hope, a School Feeding Program in the Philippines. This event was a huge success and provide a wonderful service learning opportunity for children and adults of all ages.

On Saturday, February 3, 2024, families in the Langley Pyramid are joining together again this year to help children in need. In partnership with Rise Against Hunger, the Langley pyramid elementary, middle, and high schools are coming together with a goal to prepare 83,000 meal packages for schools and orphanages around the world.

Donate and help raise money for the event:

Each Langley HS student is encouraged to donate directly online at Langley Pyramid Rise Against Hunger 2024.  Each meal costs only 46 cents to make. For just $15, you can donate over 32 meals; $30 will make over 65 meals and $100 will make nearly 220 meals.

In order to reach our goal of 75,000 meals, the Langley Pyramid needs to raise $35,000 by January 31st  If your company makes matching contributions, please consider having them join you in making a tax-deductible donation today at: Langley Pyramid Rise Against Hunger 2024 and help us Rise Against Hunger

Corporate Sponsors Needed and Tax-Deductible Donation

To help offset the cost of the donation boxes and contribute to our donation cause, we are inviting companies to help sponsor this event. All sponsors will have their names included in our communications and special recognition at our event. If interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact Ken Junge at Colvin Run Elementary School 703-757-3000 or [email protected]. Rise Against Hunger is a Tax-deductible organization, and any funding families/businesses donate online towards our goal is tax-deductible. You may make your tax-deductible donation today at: Langley Pyramid Rise Against Hunger 2024.

 

Volunteer for the event: (Sign up opens January 10th!!!)

On Wednesday, January 10th, we will send out a Sign-up Genius for volunteers to register for the event and pick a time slot in which to volunteer.  Enter "Quantity" as the number of volunteers attending.  If for any reason you need to cancel, please cancel through the Sign-up Genius to make those slots available to other Langley High School families. Being a popular pyramid event, please sign up as volunteer slots will fill up quickly.  Children ages 4-12 must be accompanied by an adult. On the day of the event, volunteers package meals based on the amount of money raised, so it is recommended that if you wish to volunteer for the event, please make a monetary donation.   

 

About Rise Against Hunger

Rise Against Hunger is a 4-star rated organization that sends nutrient-rich, dehydrated meal packages to developing countries around the world.  In those countries, the meal packages are delivered to families through the schools.  In developing countries, children may not attend school to receive a formal education, so in part to this program, more children are being encouraged to attend school to receive a hot meal at school and additional meal packages for their families.  As an additional benefit, more children are also receiving a formal education. Click here to learn more about Rise Against Hunger. 

This is a great event for the whole family! Don't miss out.  Please email [email protected] if you have any questions.Thank you for your support of this initiative. 

Fondly,

Wellness Screening- November 14, 2023     

(9th Grade Parents Only)

Mental health problems can develop in adolescence which is full of emotions for teens. Some of these emotions are actually mental illnesses. Depression is among the most common mental illnesses. Depression is treatable; however, it is a leading risk factor for suicide. To proactively address mental illness, Langley High School is providing a mental wellness screening and suicide prevention training as part of the SOS Signs of Suicide Prevention Program.  9th grade parents received an email on October 10th with details regarding this screening and an opt-out link should they wish to do so.  Please contact Tim Ready, school counselor, at [email protected] with any questions.

Federal Impact Aid 

Each year, Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) is eligible to apply for federal Impact Aid grant funds. Impact Aid is a federal formula grant program designed to assist local school districts that enroll federally-connected students. Federally-connected students are children of active duty uniformed services personnel; children who live on federal property or in subsidized federal housing; and children whose parents are employed on eligible federal properties.

FCPS anticipates receiving approximately $3,000,000 in unrestricted funds from the Impact Aid grant. These funds become part of the school system's general operating budget and are critical to maintaining high standards for educational excellence. This year, FCPS is pleased to announce that the Federal Impact Aid Survey will be available electronically through your ParentVUE account. The survey is now open in ParentVUE. Please visit this link  to find out more about the Impact Aid program, directions for completing the form, and to log in to ParentVUE. We are required to have a form for each student even if the parents are not federally connected; so, please fill out one for each child you have enrolled in FCPS. If you are experiencing difficulties with SIS please submit an IT request at the following link: https://itweb.fcps.edu/itsupport/parent/For families that do not have access to ParentVUE or prefer to complete a paper form, a printed form will be provided at your request.

As always, if you have questions, would like a paper form, or need assistance, please reach out to our survey coordinator at [email protected]

No Food Deliveries!

Please note that students are not allowed to receive food deliveries during the school day due to security concerns. If a student needs food, they can contact their counselor, cafeteria staff, or administrator for assistance.
